Just noticed a big drop for one of my sites. I bought some sape links few months ago for that site and now it's almost gone from google serps.:confused:

Lucky me that I was inspired not to buy sape links for my other sites.:top:

my main competitor still dominate the first page with his SAPE links, while i'm dropped without SAPE. THis update is not about SAPE, i'm sure.

I dont use sape links for my clients, but still seeing drop for few of my clients. It seems to be general update rather targeting sape link users.
I personally think that the main target was sape since a few weeks ago Matt Cutts acknowledged it (Indirectly):



I think this is one of google's shot gun updates, what I mean by that is that even though they have a specific target in mind, they never really hit the bulls eye (hence why unrelated sites gets effected):



But until offical word comes out, this is all speculation.

I don't think its only sape target, there are some other platforms on target or some signals which lead to lower rankings.

yikes. I dropped out a couple weeks ago and my SAPE test site hurled forward yesterday and today. But I also have super high quality GSA links pointed to the site... high quality = highly spun 99% and unreadable. might be the same thing to big G.
